Ritsuko Sakai's son
While writing about her fight against cancer, TV director, Sakai remembers that her son muttered like this on their way home after he had been waiting for her at the nursery school until late. People have "the moment when they come to like something" without any calculation. And she realizes again that people can get it across to people they want to tell in words. She says that unimportant reports sent by her friends everyday were also a reassuring support. From "Life And Cancer."
